Have Fun While Learning! Here are 75 Facts You’ll Think Are Made Up (But Aren’t)

Nothing I like better than finding out that I don’t know nearly as much as I think I do. I never knew that hippos sweat blood – I guess I never thought about it.  And if you asked me what kills more people – coconuts or sharks, I’d say sharks – but coconuts kill more people. I guess it’s best not to walk under trees with coconuts on them!

“…Don’t know much about history,
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book,
Don’t know much about the french I took…”

I’m beginning to think that that song is about me! If you told me that I could rub garlic on my bare feet and taste it in my mouth, I’d tell say that you’re crazy. But if told me that, you’d be right.  And if you asked me what the official animal of Scotland was, I’d tell you Nessie, but I’d be wrong. The official animal of Scotland another mythical animal – the unicorn.

Here are some of the many other things I didn’t know:

Froot Loops are all the same flavor
